Joe Rogan is returning to his roots.
The UFC color commentator will host the relaunch of NBC’s Fear Factor.
Rogan hosted the show during its first run from 2001 to 2006. NBC ordered eight episodes and production begins in August. If the ratings are strong, additional episodes could be ordered.
Eight new episodes of the show will be produced beginning next month and the series is expected to debut on NBC in September.
The show’s format will remain mostly the same except contestants will compete in pairs rather than as individuals.
